Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Discusses the Inner House decision in K v Authority Reporter, which found that the European Convention on Human Rights 1950 art.6 required a party to civil proceedings to be provided with state-funded legal representation when the party would otherwise not be able to participate effectively in the proceedings. Considers the court's guidance as to when it would be appropriate to make an appointment of a legal representative. Notes the factors which might affect a person's ability to effectively participate in a children's hearing as prescribed by the Children's Hearings (Legal Representation) Amendment Rules 2009, enacted to pre-empt the court's ruling.
